The Nine Mile Creek Watershed District is accepting cost-share grant applications from residents, schools, townhouse and condominium associations, and other eligible organizations for projects that protect and improve water and natural resources within the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District.
Projects must be in the boundaries of the district and result in improved water quality or preserve, protect or restore native plant and wildlife habitat. Eligible projects include, but are not limited to: rain gardens, pervious pavers, native habitat restoration and shoreline buffers. Many of these types of projects are also beneficial to pollinators, birds and wildlife since they incorporate a variety of Minnesota native plants.
The Nine Mile Creek Watershed District is a special purpose unit of local government focused on water quality and water resources management that includes parts of Edina, Bloomington, Hopkins, Minnetonka, Eden Prairie and Richfield.
The application deadline is March 22, 2019
